A new comic book adaptation...
Valiant Comics is about to see one of their properties his the big screen. AICN reports that a feature version of Archer & Armstrong is being developed by the comic book company and that they're fast-tracking it based on the early development. The film will stick with the most recent Fred Van Lente/Clayton Henry run, with the titular heroes battling the One Percent gang.
The comic book debuted in 1992 and features Archer, a master martial artist born into a stark religious home, and Armstrong, an immortal being with enhanced abilities, with the pair finding themselves at odds originally as Archer seeks to kill the immortal globe hopper. The two quickly form a bond when they realize that they're being hunted by a secret group called The Sect.
